PLAIN LUNACY: THE WASTED LIFE OF RYAN OWENS.

Plain lunacy is distinguished from complex lunacy by the fact that one does not need a protractor to figure it out. Remember protractors? Tubularsock has three. One plastic, one metal, and one wood. The wooden one is by far the best to keep Tubularsock “grounded” while working with complex lunacy. But fear not. We aren’t going there today.

Plain lunacy is recognized by a commodity known as “common sense” which in today’s world is in very short supply. And due to that let Tubularsock give you an example.

It is “common sense” that if you stand in quick sand you sink. And yet mankind has conducted wars between one another from the beginning of time sinking deeper and deeper and yet finding the only solution is to conduct another one and another one and another one, ad nauseam.

The thing about “common sense” is it is organic by nature and that may be why it is in such short supply while living within the GMO corporate-industrial-military-security-psyop-complex. Matrix for short!

Now none of this is even new to any of you. Nor to Tubularsock. But it all came crashing back like a nightmarish dream during Orange-Tweet’s “presidential?” speech to Congress.

Much of the PRESS praised Orange-Tweet for SOUNDING so Presidential. Which only means that Orange-Tweet read his speech from a teleprompter and that the speech was written by somebody else with the knowledge of the key and appropriate PLATITUDINAL-BULL-SHIT that is uttered by every other President that has given speeches to the nation.

And a complete and utter moron could give you a synopsis of all that was ludicrous about that speech but Tubularsock will just provide only ONE point that is ALWAYS one of the best tricks out of a BS-magic show.

Parading out the grieving widow! THE HEIGHT OF BULL SHIT MAGNIFICO!

At this point let Tubularsock just say that this entire “show” was really at the expense of Carryn Owens, the bereaving widow who had just lost her husband. For her, the intensity of pain was palpable and very sad.

However it appears in this photo that the VERY BRAVE GENERALS were more “shocked” by her behavior of showing emotion than having any emotion of loss themselves. They’ll go home to their wives and instruct their drivers what time to pick them up in the morning to return to the Pentagon to plan more death and destruction based on existential fear! Ass holes all!

The use by Orange Tweet and the Generals of an intense display of the TRUTH OF WAR they, as always, attempt to give us all that total crap about just how BRAVE, COURAGEOUS, SELFLESS, HEROIC WARRIOR dead Owens was and added to that the embarrassing shit about “. . . battling against terrorism and securing our nation.”

WELL NO! Thirty-six year-old Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens, was mislead. Unfortunately Owens believed that he was serving and protecting his country. As delusional unfortunately that happens to be in this case. In most in truth!

ryan-owens

Tubularsock wonders if Owens EVER even thought what the fuck was he protecting us from while shooting up  Yemen?

No! Owens, according to The Chicago Times, dreamed of becoming a SEAL since he was in high school and enlisted right after high school. The perfect age for stupidity! No thinking there!

Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens was a dupe, just cannon fodder, and now dead Owens has to be pumped up with empty meaningless adulation so as the next stupid high school student will want to throw his life away as well!

THERE IS NO GLORY IN KILLING OTHER PEOPLE ……….. PERIOD. There is absolutely nothing courageous or brave or selfless or heroic. It is just extrajudicial murder and one who carries it out is just a murderer plain and simple.

As so well stated in The Americanization of Emily, a 1964 movie about WW2, Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison (James Garner) says: “We shall never end wars, Mrs. Barham, by blaming it on the ministers and generals, or warmongering imperialists, or all the other banal bogeys. It’s the rest of us who build statues to those generals and name boulevards after those ministers. The rest of us who make heroes of our dead and shrines of our battlefields. We wear our widow’s weeds like nuns, Mrs. Barham, and perpetuate war by exalting its sacrifices.”

Now there is no question that “Ryan” Owens “bought into” the “serving your country crap”. Tubularsock has no argument with the protection of one’s country. The argument comes when it IS OUR COUNTRY that is the aggressor to other countries.

Afghanistan NEVER attacked the United States!

Iraq NEVER attacked the United States!

Libya NEVER attacked the United States!

Vietnam NEVER attacked the United States!

And by far not the last example, Yemen NEVER attacked the United States!

So just exactly WHO was Owens and the pack of Chicken-Shit-Navy-SEALS murderers protecting? Definitely not you or Tubularsock! Or for that matter any American citizen.

Yemen? American military killing people in Yemen? What the fuck?

DO YOU FEEL SAFER? FUCK NO, WE’RE NOT SAFER!

Wonder why?

Well, it is simple really. Let Tubularsock return to the “common sense” of Plain Lunacy.

Never arm lunatics with guns!

You should remember that there was no such thing as al-Qaeda until the U.S. created them to fight the Russians in Afghanistan back under the Reagan and Carter Administrations.

And even to this day the U.S. government keeps pushing that IT’S THE TERRORISTS, IT’S THE TERRORISTS, IT’S THE TERRORISTS but the U.S. government keeps arming them.

Whether it’s Shrub, Step-En-Fetch-It, or Small-Hands-Orange-Tweet each have continued to provide arms and support to the terrorists.

They all keep repeating that battling against terrorism and securing our nation is our goal sooooooooo,

EXACTLY WHERE IS THE COMMON SENSE LOGIC IN CONTINUING ARMING THEM?

Oh, unless there is another agenda that is not being stated to the American public, an agenda that Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens and so many others have literally “fallen for”. But rest assured SOMEBODY PROFITS!

And speaking about Americans there was another American citizen killed in this raid in Yemen. And that was 8-year-old Nawar (Nora) who was visiting her mother when the raid took place. She was one of the 24 civilians killed by the American “brave” SEAL murderers.

nawar-nora-awlaki

Of course there is always an answer. US Air Force colonel John Thomas said: “Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula has a horrifying history of hiding women and children within militant operating areas and terrorist camps, and continuously shows a callous disregard for innocent lives. That’s what makes cases like these so especially tragic.”

But here is the problem with all that ……… THEY LIVE THERE!

US Air Force colonel John Thomas doesn’t!

It is like all those 100’s of thousands of civilians that guys like US Air Force colonel John Thomas napalmed in Vietnam. Burning them alive! They were all in there with the Vietcong ….. Remember?

THEY LIVED THERE! THAT WAS THEIR HOME!

It is the fucking brain dead like US Air Force colonel John Thomas that attacked them in THEIR COUNTRY!

That is like saying that all the people that died in the Twin Towers on 9/11 were in those buildings because of the horrifying history of capitalists showing callous disregard for innocent lives.

GIVE TUBULARSOCK A BREAK!

But that isn’t the entire story.
Nawar (Nora), was the 8-year-old daughter of Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Yemeni-American cleric killed in a targeted U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2011. A strike ordered by Obummer. Anwar al-Awlaki too was an American citizen born in New Mexico.

anwar-al-awlaki

And Obummer has never commented publicly on the targeted drone strike that accidentally killed Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a 16-year-old American boy and the son of al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki in 2011. The teenager, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen who was born in Denver in 1995.

abdulrahman-al-awlaki

So so much for “protecting Americans”!

All this death and destruction was approved over dinner five days after the presidential inauguration by Orange-Tweet and his closest advisers.

Oh don’t worry, Tweet-boy didn’t lose any sleep over it and by using Carryn Owens as a propaganda prop it just showed better on TV! You see the Orange-Tweet could not help but brag that his words “. . . had inspired the hugest, greatest standing ovation ever, so long and loud, it’ll make your head spin. Believe me.”

HUMANITARIANESQUE BUT NOT!

This week the USAID’s “Large shipment of life-saving assistance arrives in Yemen”.

According to its website:

WASHINGTON, D.C. -The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) announced the arrival of enough wheat to feed more than one million people for two months in Yemen this morning. The wheat shipment from USAID totals 35,800tons and is valued at approximately $21million. It will support the emergency food assistance efforts of the UN World Food Program (WFP).

Wow, $21 million ……. sounds like a lot doesn’t it.

And this week from the U.S. State Department:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. State Department has approved the possible sale to Saudi Arabia of 5.4 billion in additional PAC-3 missiles built by Lockheed Martin Corp., the Pentagon said . . . and $500 million worth of ammunition. (Reuters)

Well it seems to Tubularsock that that $21 million doesn’t seem like very much anymore.

And if you add that in October, 2010 the U.S. provided Saudi Arabia with $60 BILLION worth of arms, the largest arms deal in American history well that $21 million just looks more like chump change now doesn’t it.

Now just a reminder for those who haven’t been awake. Saudi Arabia is blowing the shit out of Yemen and has been for months. And the U.S. is providing all the shit to blow up the shit.

Well it comes down to this, the American backed dictator of Yemen was overthrown by a rebel group called the Houthi and the Houthi are not the guys the U.S. wants to control Yemen and nor do our good friends the Saudis.

So the ONLY solution is to blow the shit out of all the men, women, and children of Yemen.

Are the people of Yemen pro-Houthi or pro-former dictator? Well, who has time to ask.

WE (America) don’t like the Houthi and that’s enough.

Now Tubularsock has given up a long time ago trying to figure out the good-guys from the bad-guys but whether it’s a dictatorship of the Houthi or an American appointed dictator what’s it to those under either dictator.

The most honest thing about all this is the U.S. is not talking up all that bringing democracy to Yemen crap. Tubularsock see that as growth.

But here is where it gets Orwellian.head in hole

The U.N. started on April 17, 2015 an appeal for $274 million (the cost of one helicopter)  to respond to the most pressing humanitarian needs over the following three months in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia IMMEDIATELY volunteered to write a check out for that exact amount. BUT THE AID WOULD COME WITH STRINGS ATTACHED!

And those strings would control who got the aid. Now, in the once upon a time world, humanitarian aid was directed toward civilians who were caught in the middle of a conflict regardless of who they were ……. they were civilians.

But by Saudi Arabia controlling the humanitarian purse they have turned the humanitarian aid into genocide.

As Sheikh al­Matari, the head of Yemen’s Rasoul Akram Foundation, an aid organization stated,

“After unilaterally and, let’s be frank, after illegally declaring war on Yemen, (do we dare say preemptive?) the Saudi government wants also to dictate how humanitarian relief is distributed in the very country it is attacking”.

And  Sheikh al­Matari continued, “. . . aid funding in relation to Yemen, the U.N. de facto institutionalized aid segregation by allowing humanitarian relief to be conditional to certain criteria: political affiliation and religious orientation.”

As outrageous as this is the United States and the United Nations stands by and allows this genocidal behavior to take place.

Makes Tubularsock wonder whether either of these entities are  worth anything any longer.
